that the social media exploded because president obama came on instead of the football game to talk about this event and people called him the "n" word all day. we know there are pockets of crazy people. >> joy: they are crazy, and i got to go. thank you all very much. you can see judy at kung pow kosher comedy on december december 22nd through the 25th. >> kosher comedy.com. >> joy: yes, thanks to all my guests tonight. >> cenk: welcome to the "young turks." i'm worked up today. i'm mad, a big shock right? in my personal life, home a happy go lucky guy. politics makes me angry. >> president obama is about to screw you cutting social security by a gigantic amount. i'm going to show you and prove it to you. i know, i know, he had to do it, oh, bad republicans. i know. we'll talk about that. then the n.r.a. he's shocked and saddened by what happened. is that right? congressman yarnis said this. >> every american family, i will not be silent any longer. >> well there's the congressman. we'll talk in a little bit. that what can we actually do about gun control? that is a real important topic.
countries for saying that. i'm not playing. i'll explained later in the show. president obama goes to michigan, but did he finally stand up for workers? find out later in the show. do you know what else we have in the show for you? ed asner. he made this video. >> you have rich people peeing on poor people. >> how disgusting. do you have money? >> yeah. >> can i piss on you? >> cenk: damn. we'll show you the original video, we'll show you that, and we have ed right here on the show. and then the elbow of the day we have a little knockout. we'll go to politics, and then cause to celebrate. we have gay marriages in washington that started over the weekend. [ cheering ] >> cenk: what i'm amused by is people who see that celebration and go, o, how terrible. we'll talk about it all on tonight's show. you know what time it is, go time. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> cenk: so off and on on this show we talk about money and politics. i think it's the number one issue over all other issues. for once i have an amusing fact about that for you guys. last couple of weeks of the election turns out r
. >> obama: are we really prepared to say that we're powerless in the face of such carnage? that the politics are too hard. >> cenk: that is what he might be saying. we'll have that discussion. there is also good news on politicians coming forward to say that they're going to do something. then we're going to talk about mental health, and there is a mother speaking out speaking out as well, regarding her own kid. >> i'm liza long, i am the mother of a mentally ill son. i wonder some day will i be that mom? >> cenk: that's a powerful story. then of course we have the idiots on the right. >> i wish to god she had an gun in her office locked up when she heard gunfire she then she wouldn't have had to lunge with nothing. >> cenk: what an unbelievable fool. all right, it's go time. [ ♪ music ♪ ] [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> obama: in the face of un unconsciencible evil, you look out for each other. >> the principle and school psychologist who were killed after confronting the gunmen. >> the leaders in the building did what they needed to do, knowing that that gun shower gunfire was showering the hallw
obama would be more progressive because he wouldn't have to face re-election. i thought that was very unlikely. color me surprised. because it turns out president obama is more progressive! and a little tougher negotiator--so far. now apparently i'm not the only one surprised. when he gave his new storms on the fiscal cliff negotiations, well apparently john boehner was a little bit surprised. >> tim geithner sit there like we are here and presented this to you. what did you say? >> flabbergasted. >> cenk: flabbergasted. well, what went wrong? where do you think we are today. >> i would say we're nowhere. period. we're nowhere. we've put a serious offer on the table by putting revenues up there to get this question resolved. but the white house has responded with virtually nothing. they've asked for more revenue than asking for the whole entire time. >> cenk: that's just not true at all. he says we did this serious offer. here is the offer that john boehner put forward--butkis. nothing. he said, i'm interested in raising revenue or we're willing to do that. so how much, you want to cu
president obama said before the election? i'll remind you don't worry here it comes. my hope, my expectation is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal beating obama does not make much sense because i'm not running again that we can start getting some cooperation again. hate to do it to you but wrong again, bob. it doesn't look like you're going to get a lot of cooperation. but then the radical wing of the republican party said no the republicans are being too soft and boehner is being too light on the president. his grand bargain proposal the republican counter offer to the extent that it can be interpreted from the hazy details now available is a dud. it's utterly unacceptable. it is bad policy and bad economics. that's the heritage foundation. they're saying it's too liberal boehner's proposal. that's funny. >> to think that the fever will have broken, you have this sort of tea party wing of the party controlling their party. i've said this before, what we need is a republican party. we need leaders that can control their party. >> cenk: yeah, it doesn't look liarlike
president obama and i'm still in office, and by the way, remember president obama smokeed pot himself and apparently other things as well, and yet he puts all of those people in jail for smoking pot. he continues to do the same insanity that all of these other presidents have continued throughout their administrations. this is what i would do. first of all, i would leave the states alone. this is what i tell conservatives. you win. colorado washington, have all the states rights in the world to legalize marijuana. second of all i would begin the legalization process on the federal level and then to make conservative heads explode i would do a blanket pardon for all people in prison for marijuana possession. you're free to go. because they never should have been arrested in the first place. it's criminal how many people we have locked up in prison over marijuana possession. if i were president, we would have a different country. it might an little fun. but a guy who might disagree with me is jack burke man on radio america. the people who smoke in washington and colorado, and expect yo
or barack obama's welfare state. >> we supported challengers opposed to tarp, opposed to the debt deal, 2011 and this is the sort of vote that we'll look at closely when we look at hour options in 2014. >> a whole lot of members who thought they were safe and thought they could get away with this will lose in their own districts. >> cenk: so me, what's interesting is that the press will look at that and go look, that's the right wing and then they'll show progressives, they hate to deal, so the answer must be in the middle. what they don't say is their position is deeply unpopular. about 70% of the country doesn't agree. a majority of republicans do not agree with the position. a progressive position, don't cut social security and medicare is deeply popular 87% saying we agree with the progressives. >> so many of the people that the club for growth supported this year didn't win. so we're talking about this conservative congress and yes it is a conservative congress. most of them were reelected. they had a terrible record this year with the senate and house. our report card, we've been heari
obama. first, let me show you what he thought about president obama overall. >> what's your view on him is he a real progressive? >> no, i think right now obama is a manager of a wounded empire and he's committed himself with his cabinet to maintain the empire. not only maintain it, i'd go further. i think that th behind thececes, 's ee's veeyer effective to keep us very strong militarily. he's looked, essentially the pentagon is achieving and by 2020 will have achieved full spectrum dominance over the entire earth. >> so it's an interesting opinion. look he's a good manager of an empire that we shouldn't have and that his no need for this dominance over all the things in the world, and that this is not the kind of progressive obviously that we thought we were getting necessarily. now, so he had mixed feelings about president obama but he had much stronger words for conservatives that never fought in wars, and i don't know if you know this, but oliver stone served in vietnam and we talked about that. >> i feel if you don't go into the military, then you lose credibility. >> we have a wo
the election for president obama. acorn! let me explain acorn no longer exists. ifit filed for bankruptcy in 2010. these republicans are cuckoo for cocoa puffs. to say that the election was stolen is insanity to begin with. look, i think half of the republicans vote that way because they don't know what is going on. their pastor told them, or they think they're doing it right the other half are literally insane. we have 25% of the country saying oh, my god, 21 is coming and it's because of acorn and obama stole the election and put it on mars! you're insane! 49% of them think this. oh unbelievable! all right now we turn to the second issue general petraeus. now he was, of course, caught with the mistress, etc. his career is done. but before it was done, when he was in afghanistan and president obama was offering him as head job of the c.i.a. the head of fox news sends an fox news analyst to interview him and then delivers the real message. >> i got something to say to you, by the way. >> no one else was in the room i hope? >> well, directly to advance is-- >> i'm not running. >> that's no

, even under president obama the middle class and the poor are actually going to get 75% of the pain in the best case scenario. that's why i'm against this grand bargain. it's a terrible idea. the people who gain are the ones who should now do that shared sacrifice. in fact, i want to show you about who did do that gain over the long period. this is my favorite chart. productivity i guess the yellow line and it has been zooming up. around the late 1970's, 1980, your wages and income have flatlined. you see the giant difference between the yellow and blue line? that is all that extra gain, income productivity that did not go to you. it went to the top 1%. so, if they gained then, and we're talking about sacrifice now, aren't they the ones that should be doing the sacrificing? why do you want to put 71% of the sacrifice on the guys whose wages and income have stagnated? that makes no sense whatsoever. what you're worried about the top 1%, the republicans saying boohoo they're paying so much, it is record high taxes, it is of course the exact opposite. we are right now when you look at
in the world. >> joy: i think republicans would have given her just as much trouble as they gave obama. what about dade petraeus for president? apparently roger ailes wanted him to run four president. listen to a conversation between a fox news contributor and david petraeus in 2011. watch. >> joy: you know, roger ailes says that it is a big joke. do you think he was joking? >> john: i would have liked to have seen him run before all of this happened. it is deeply embarrassing, discussing this with a british person, by the way, no offense james bond movie opens, our top spy has to resign for sex with one person. >> i did find it -- the head of the c.i.a. relationship with a woman and did it by gmail and it was found out by the fbi. it makes you wonder what the fbi is doing to the rest of us. >> so slippery, i don't want him as president. >> but the fact that he had a little bit of a different side and he maybe had this woman on the side, clinton left the white house with the biggest approval rating in the history of the wor
to do differently. let's watch. >> obama: the fact that we can't prevent every act of violence doesn't mean we can't steadily reduce the violence. and prevent the very worst violence. that's why i've asked the vice president to lead an effort that includes members of my cabinet and outside organizations to come up with a set of concrete proposals no later than january proposals that i then intend to push without delay. >> cenk: he said it's not going to be a task force that lasts six months and goes nowhere. there will be immediate action. i hope that's the case. the reason why bide someone the excellent person to head this up is because he was in the task force that banned assault weapons in the first place. a new poll out from cnn semi automatic assault guns ban look at that? 62%. there was one question for the president that was a little devastating. let's watch. >> this is not the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years. where have you been? >> well, here's where i've been, jake. i've president of the united states dealing with the worst economic crisis on the
. they would turn to me and say please will you go talk to president obama and explain to him we're poor people, uneducated people, we're thought terrorists as if i could walk into the president's office. one man holds up a picture of his mother, 65 years old and he brought the picture to prove to me she was not a terrorist. so we're doing some awful things in materials of killing and it's important that we begin to make the moral argument, but also there's a security argument. we have taken, there are 100 bad guys over there and turned it into a million people who detest us now for what we're doing to them their community homes and schools. schools are empty in the tribal area because parents are afraid to send them to school, because the drones are over 24/7. it's not just when they strike and kill, it's the ongoing presence, who is going to be assassinated next. >> collections of people draw strikes. i wish we lived in a world where president obama would actually listen to a progressive like you, robert, but unfortunately we're not in that world. so now, i understand you talked to enron kahn
problem. president obama's drug strategy will try to balance er, enforcement, sanctions etcetera, with the importance of public health. part of that of course, includes the importance of quality treatment programs that work, prevention programs that can be quite effective. >>the messaging is good. and the recognition that this is very difficult and not simply solved, is very good. whether there are big changes, to how us institutions operate, the prison institutions, their drug enforcement, structures and their international state department, structures, er remains to be seen. >>what we call the war on drugs has been operated now in earnest internationally for fifty years. we have to acknowledge that we're not succeeding with current policies, and we have to think again. simply being tough on drugs, war on drugs, strong punishments, widespread arrests, this itself does not basically change the nature of the illegal drug market. there were real negative consequences human, financial and social costs. i think future drug policies should be based on the principles of human rights h
